Ruins of the Houses of Kelso

On our final stop on the best weekend ever, we stopped by the little town that's smack dab in the center of the Mojave Desert, the partial ghost town known as Kelso.

 

Kelso's train depot has been renovated and is open today as a information center about the Mojave Desert. This center was done very well, everything was re-done and beautiful inside, but it was what was outside that really caught my eye.

 

Not even more then 10 buildings away, all the buildings from the past have been washed away with time. This used to be a long line of houses, now only one house out of the set remains. This shot was taken from the back yard of that house, which we explored in great depth.

 

This was the first ghost town we'd ever been to, but now there's absolutely no way it can be the last. There are still much much more pictures from here and from my trip, scarily enough for all the pictures we take on a session by session basis we realized in the last 2 months we took more shots then we'd taken in the previous 2 years! So yeah, I've got a lot of editing to do.

 

This is posted straight from the camera, set all the way back on vintage mode.
